Fully autonomous driving has always been the goal of our project, because we think this could improve road safety and help lots of people who can't drive. 

We're now developing prototypes of vehicles that have been designed from the ground up to drive themselves—just push a button and they'll take you where you want to go! We'll use these vehicles to test our software and learn what it will really take to bring this technology into the world.

After almost ten years, +Nikesh Arora  our Chief Business Officer, has decided to leave Google to join one of our partners, SoftBank, as Vice Chairman of SoftBank Corp. and CEO of SoftBank Internet and Media.   I remember first meeting him at the British Museum, which for some reason Sergey had decided would be a good interview location. Nikesh has been a tremendous leader, adviser and mentor to many Googlers -- including me.  We have learned a lot together, and had a lot of fun along the way.  

+Omid Kordestani, who was our business founder and led our sales teams for many years, will be stepping in to lead our business organization for now.  When we hired Omid we had no business people so we had all the engineers interview him around a ping pong table.  I think he survived because he is actually an engineer!  Omid has always been one of my closest advisors, especially since I became CEOagain ... more »

Excited by the progress the Loon team has made in just one year.  Amazing what you can do when you start from first principles and real world physics. In their most recent test flight, the team helped connect a school in rural Brazil for the very first time. I hope that we can help make internet access available in an affordable way to everyone on the planet. I'm also inspired to wear some fuzzy socks based on the article :)

Many of you appreciated my earlier share of a pancake recipe I like for mothers day. Here is how it turned out. Note the yellow a bit unusual and I think because I used little extra egg and partially cooked the liquid part by putting it on the griddle because I forgot to melt the butter. Still was delicious. I recommend peanut butter as added toping with touch of maple syrup.

Vic -- thank you for a tremendous almost eight years at Google.  You cut your teeth on our mobile apps and developer relations, turning our disparate efforts into something great.  When I first used turn-by-turn navigation, it blew me away.  And, walking onto the stage at I/O last year, it was amazing to see developers so excited about Google.  These were vintage Vic projects.  Then you built Google+ from nothing.  There are few people with the courage and ability to start something like that and I am very grateful for all your hard work and passion.  I really enjoy using Google+ on a daily basis, especially the auto awesome movies which I really love sharing with my family and friends.  Good luck with your next project after Google.  In the meantime we’ll continue working hard to build great new experiences for the ever increasing number of Google+ fans.

And Then

Last month, my wife's uncle died in a tragic accident in LA when the bicycle he was using to get lunch was hit by a truck. At the memorial service his daughter relayed a very touching story. 

She said her dad (who was her best friend) called every day to talk. But instead of opening the call with the customary "How are you" or "What's going on", her dad always opened the conversation with "And then?" Her father viewed each conversation as a continuation of the last, and what pained her the most was that there were to be no more "and thens". I cried. 

Since then I've thought a lot about how similar this is to our life's endeavors. We pour our heart and soul into our work and it becomes something we love and cherish. But even the challenges we work on today will one day become "and thens" as we move on to the next. 

Today I'm announcing my departure from Google after almost 8 years.

I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don't believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else. And I'm overwhelmed when I think about the leadership of +Larry Page and what he empowered me to do while at Google. From starting Google I/O, to being responsible for all mobile applications, to creating Google+, none of this would have happened without Larry's encouragement and support.

I'm also forever in debt to the Google+ team. This is a group of people who built social at Google against the skepticism of so many. The growth of active users is staggering, and speaks to the work of this team. But it doesn't tell you what kind of people they are. They are invincible dreamers. I love them. And I will miss them dearly.

Finally, thank you to all those who I've met on Google+. The community here has been so supportive that I don't even know how to say thank you. You all make Google+. Without you, this social network wouldn't exist. Your support for Google+, and for me personally is something I will never forget. 

But, now is the time for a new journey. A continuation. An "and then". I am excited about what's next. But this isn't the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past 8 years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come.

And then....
+Vic Gundotra

Android wear!

Sharing what’s up our sleeve: Android coming to wearables

Today we’re excited to extend Android to wearables. And we’re starting with the most familiar wearable—watches. We’re already working with several consumer electronics manufacturers, including Asus, HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung; chip makers Broadcom, Imagination, Intel, Mediatek and Qualcomm; and fashion brands like the Fossil Group to bring you watches powered by Android Wear later this year. If you’re a developer, check out developer.android.com/wear to download a Developer Preview so you can tailor your existing app notifications for watches powered by Android Wear. Look out for more developer resources and APIs coming soon.

Check out our blog post to learn more: http://goo.gl/82RHsF___Android wear!

I’m excited to announce that we’ve agreed to acquire Nest Labs.  Nest’s founders, Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers, have built a tremendous team that we are excited to welcome into the Google family.  They’re already delivering amazing products you can buy right now--thermostats that save energy and smoke/CO alarms that can help keep your family safe.  It’s amazing to see how they have taken important but unloved devices and made them beautifully simple and useful.  We are excited to bring great experiences to more homes in more countries and fulfill their dreams!

Been enjoying the amazing new photos experience here!

Google's Magic Picture Machine goes beyond science fiction.

Science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke said that "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." But even Clarke never envisioned Google’s Magic Picture Machine.

The new Google+ photo and video features announced today by +Vic Gundotra are obviously an incredible benefit to users, unlike anything else out there. 

But can we take a moment to marvel at the technology behind it?

Let's start with a magic trick:

Just got done with earnings.  Here were my remarks:

Hi everybody.  Thanks for joining us today.  Google had another strong quarter with $14.9 billion in revenue and great product progress.   We are closing in on our goal of a beautiful, simple, and intuitive experience regardless of your device.

Research has shown that people tend to overestimate the impact of technology in the short term … yet underestimate the scale of change longer term.

For years everyone talked about the multi screen world.  Now it’s arrived … BUT at a scale few imagined.  People increasingly have more than one device.  And screens are proliferating -- in the home as well as wearable screens like watches and Google Glass.

Just got done with earnings.  Here were my remarks:

Hi everybody.  Thanks for joining us today.  Google had another strong quarter with $14.9 billion in revenue and great product progress.   We are closing in on our goal of a beautiful, simple, and intuitive experience regardless of your device.

Research has shown that people tend to overestimate the impact of technology in the short term … yet underestimate the scale of change longer term.

For years everyone talked about the multi screen world.  Now it’s arrived … BUT at a scale few imagined.  People increasingly have more than one device.  And screens are proliferating -- in the home as well as wearable screens like watches and Google Glass.

When Android was still a skunkworks project, I used to feel kind of guilty visiting the team.  We were a search company and building a new operating system wasn’t an obvious move to most people.  Turns out that was a lot of misplaced guilt!  Over 1 billion Android devices have now been activated worldwide -- and 1.5M devices are lit up every day.

I am also tremendously excited about Chromebooks -- which are growing fast and defying the more general decline in laptops.  Just like the Chrome browser, updates are seamless and frequent improving security and usability.  This is a great example of technology doing the hard work so you can get on with the stuff that matters.

Two weeks ago, we launched the new HP Chromebook 11.  It’s beautifully designed, and lightweight -- at just over two pounds -- and at $279 highly affordable.  Best of all it has a high power micro-USB charger that can also charge your Android phone.  Re-charging is still way too much of a sweat and there’s tremendous potential to innovate.  So it’s great to see progress here.

This quarter we also launched the Moto X -- the first phone Motorola has developed and produced since Google acquired the company.  It’s clean, super fast and the voice features are great.  So while it’s still early days, Dennis and the team have already transformed Motorola’s product quality.  Now they’re working to build out marketing and distribution.

As screens multiply, the ability to navigate across them seamlessly becomes more and more important.

That’s why I love Chromecast -- which we launched in July and it immediately became a bestseller.  Pull out your phone, tablet or laptop and start playing some music from YouTube, or a show from Google Play or Netflix.  With one click the content is there on the biggest screen in your home … your TV.  All for just $35.  And, unlike some other streaming devices, you can continue to email, search and share as the Chromecast handles the hard work without draining your device battery.  Genuine multi-tasking in a multi screen world.

We’re also making great progress across devices with YouTube.  Almost 40 percent of YouTube’s traffic now comes from mobile -- up from 6 percent two years ago.  And in August we updated our YouTube apps for Android and iOS.  You can now leave a video playing at the bottom of the screen while you explore other content.

Our execution and velocity in search and maps is getting better and better -- and from a very high base.  A new maps app for iOS and Android shipped in July that is specifically built for tablets to make the most of these larger screens.  And in September we rebuilt our entire mobile search experience with a simple card interface that is easy to read -- and a design that is optimized for touch.

Our momentum on voice search is tremendous.  We added four new languages this quarter, making it available in over 78 languages and accents. We’ve also expanded the quick answers we can provide just for you.  So ask Google for your flight details and they’ll appear instantly in your search results -- no digging around in your email required.  And the search across Google+ photos is extraordinary.  Search for sunsets … and all the pictures you’ve ever taken of sunsets appear instantly.  If you haven’t tried it prepare to be amazed.

About two years ago when I became CEO again my goal was to ensure that Google maintains the passion and soul of a start-up as we grow.  It’s why I have worked so hard to increase our velocity and execution -- so we create great products that people love to use and iterate fast to ensure they get better and better.  Because great is just never good enough.  When you look across the company it’s amazing how well the teams are executing.  For example, we rolled out Enhanced Campaigns in AdWords across all devices, for all our advertisers, in less than a year.

Of course none of this would happen without great people and we are so lucky that we have them.  I'd like to thank all the Googlers and Motorolans who make everything possible.  Keep up that velocity and execution.

Before I hand over the call to Patrick,  I wanted to let you know that going forward, I won’t be joining every earnings call.  Patrick and Nikesh do a great job covering our business each quarter and they’ll continue to do that great work.  I know you all would love to have me on, but you’re also depending on me to ruthlessly prioritize my time for the benefit of the business.  I’m very confident you’re in good hands with Patrick and Nikesh.  So now, over to Patrick.___

Here is the speech I just gave on the earnings call:

Hello everyone and thanks for joining our call this afternoon.  

Google had a great quarter with over $14BN in revenue -- up 19% year-on-year.  Amazing performance for a company that has yet to celebrate its fifteenth birthday!

We live in a world of abundant computing, with multiple operating systems and increasing numbers of devices.  It is a very different environment from when Google started.  There was essentially one OS and one device category:  the PC.  

These kinds of changes don’t happen that often, once a decade, maybe even less frequently.  But the shift from laptop to mobiles, from one screen to multiple screens creates tremendous opportunity for Google.

Hello everyone and thanks for joining our call this afternoon.  

Google had a great quarter with over $14BN in revenue -- up 19% year-on-year.  Amazing performance for a company that has yet to celebrate its fifteenth birthday!

We live in a world of abundant computing, with multiple operating systems and increasing numbers of devices.  It is a very different environment from when Google started.  There was essentially one OS and one device category:  the PC.  

These kinds of changes don’t happen that often, once a decade, maybe even less frequently.  But the shift from laptop to mobiles, from one screen to multiple screens creates tremendous opportunity for Google.  

With more devices, more information and more activity online than ever, the potential to improve people’s lives is immense: Getting you the right information just when you need it; Creating the tools to make everyone more effective at home and at work; and helping you share and remember the moments that matter in life.  

It’s why I am so excited about the velocity and execution on our platforms, apps and devices.  

First, platforms.  With hindsight, Android and Chrome were no brainers.  At the time they were big bets.  

The momentum across these platforms is tremendous, as you saw at our annual I/O developer conference in May.  I was astounded we had over 1M people tuning in live just to watch our developer keynote!

We’ve now activated more than 900M Android devices worldwide--and we’re lighting up over 1.5M devices every day.  That’s pretty amazing given the first Android phone launched less than five years ago.

And apps usage is increasing fast.  Over 50BN apps have now been downloaded from the Google Play store.  In fact, we’ve already paid out more money to Android developers this year than in the whole of 2012. 

I love the ability to access your “stuff” on Play anywhere.  Take our new music subscription service.  Launched in May, it is an easy, fun way to discover new music with all the songs there, ready to go.  You never have to think about the device you are using.

Chrome—even though only four years old—has over 750M users worldwide and growing!  

Then next, apps.  Our goal is to design everything so it’s beautifully simple and hassle free.  Users shouldn’t need to think about our technology.  It should just work.  

This quarter we completely revamped our maps UI.  The map is the screen, with no clutter around the edges.  There’s more information about your surroundings, so it’s easier to explore.  And we’ve launched a new, improved navigation feature—with notifications about incidents before you leave, and updates to save time if traffic conditions change.  Best of all, this new maps experience is now available on almost  all devices you’d be likely to use.  

It’s the same with Google+. We’ve done a complete redesign to make use of the entire screen, and everything looks consistent whatever the device or the platform.  

In addition, the team massively upgraded the photos experience, making software designed for professionals automatically available to everyone … for free!  There’s no need for wrinkles anymore!  Take a look on plus, many of your photos will now be marked “enhanced” and improved automatically.

Finally we launched a new communication app called Hangouts—you can talk to the people you care about across all the major platforms.  Video calls from your phone are very cool, give them a try.  

And I’m excited about the progress we continue to make with search.  Our Knowledge Graph is now available in 29 languages—and we’ve expanded the range of information available.  For example, we just added nutrition data.  Ask Google how many calories there are in a glass of white wine and you’ll find out it’s 123.  Or an avocado … 234 calories.  It’s good to have the facts if you want to keep healthy.  And we launched Google Now on iOS in April.  

In the same way, we want to make advertising super simple for customers.  Online advertising had developed in very device specific ways with separate campaigns for desktop and mobile. This made arduous work for advertisers and agencies, and meant mobile opportunities often got missed.  

It’s why we launched Enhanced Campaigns.  Advertisers have upgraded 6M campaigns, that’s almost 75 percent of all their active campaigns.   And Nikesh will talk in a little more detail about the positive reaction from clients.  This is the biggest-ever change to AdWords and the velocity and execution has been great thanks to the hard work of all the teams.

Finally, devices.  There is so much excitement around new devices today, and the potential for innovation is tremendous.  

You can now buy the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play editions, and enjoy the best of Google.  And there’s a ton of momentum around Chromebooks, which are growing fast and defying the more general decline in PC sales.

Finally I know you’re all eagerly anticipating what Motorola is launching soon.  Having been a tester for a while, I’m really excited. 

We’re very optimistic about the opportunities in front of Google today.  The potential for technology to make people’s lives better is tremendous.  But to achieve that potential we need to stay focused.  It’s why we continue to invest the vast majority of our resources and time in our core products.  But my job as CEO is also to think about the future, and ensure we continue to bet on new technology that can solve big problems in the world.   

Project Loon, which we launched in June, is a great example. Bringing affordable, balloon-powered Internet access to remote areas is an idea that Sergey and I had been thinking about for over a decade.  It was great to see that project literally get off the ground, and give people a bit more hope for an improving world.

None of this would happen without great people and we are so lucky that we have them.  I'd like to thank all the Googlers and Motorolans who make everything possible.  Keep up that velocity and execution.___

Dear Google users—

You may be aware of press reports alleging that Internet companies have joined a secret U.S. government program called PRISM to give the National Security Agency direct access to our servers. As Google’s CEO and Chief Legal Officer, we wanted you to have the facts.

First, we have not joined any program that would give the U.S. government—or any other government—direct access to our servers. Indeed, the U.S. government does not have direct access or a “back door” to the information stored in our data centers. We had not heard of a program called PRISM until yesterday.

Second, we provide user data to governments only in accordance with the law. Our legal team reviews each and every request, and frequently pushes back when requests are overly broad or don’t follow the correct process. Press reports that suggest that Google is providingopen-ended ac... more »

Dear Google users—

Our legal team reviews each and every request, and frequently pushes back when requests are overly broad or don’t follow the correct process. Press reports that suggest that Google is providing open-ended access to our users’ data are false, period. Until this week’s reports, we had never heard of the broad type of order that Verizon received—an order that appears to have required them to hand over millions of users’ call records. We were very surprised to learn that such broad orders exist. Any suggestion that Google is disclosing information about our users’ Internet activity on such a scale is completely false. 

Finally, this episode confirms what we have long believed—there needs to be a more transparent approach. Google has worked hard, within the confines of the current laws, to be open about the data requests we receive. We post this information on our Transparency Report whenever possible. We were the first company to do this. And, of course, we understand that the U.S. and other governments need to take action to protect their citizens’ safety—including sometimes by using surveillance. But the level of secrecy around the current legal procedures undermines the freedoms we all cherish.

About 14 years ago, I got a bad cold, and my voice became hoarse.  At the time I didn’t think much about it.  But my voice never fully recovered.  So I went to a doctor and was diagnosed with left vocal cord paralysis.  This is a nerve problem that causes your left vocal cord to not move properly.  Despite extensive examination, the doctors never identified a cause — though there was speculation of virus-based damage from my cold.  It is quite common in cases like these that a definitive cause is not found.

While this condition never really affected me — other than having a slightly weaker voice than normal which some people think sounded a little funny — it naturally raised questions in my mind about my second vocal cord.  But I was told that sequential paralysis of one vocal cord following another is extremely rare.

About 14 years ago, I got a bad cold, and my voice became hoarse.  At the time I didn’t think much about it.  But my voice never fully recovered.  So I went to a doctor and was diagnosed with left vocal cord paralysis.  This is a nerve problem that causes your left vocal cord to not move properly.  Despite extensive examination, the doctors never identified a cause — though there was speculation of virus-based damage from my cold.  It is quite common in cases like these that a definitive cause is not found.

While this condition never really affected me — other than having a slightly weaker voice than normal which some people think sounded a little funny — it naturally raised questions in my mind about my second vocal cord.  But I was told that sequential paralysis of one vocal cord following another is extremely rare.  

Fast forward to last summer, when the same pattern repeated itself — a cold followed by a hoarse voice. Once again things didn’t fully improve, so I went in for a check-up and was told that my second vocal cord now had limited movement as well. Again, after a thorough examination, the doctors weren’t able to identify a cause.  

Thankfully, after some initial recovery I’m fully able to do all I need to at home and at work, though my voice is softer than before. And giving long monologues is more tedious for me and probably the audience.  But overall over the last year there has been some improvement with people telling me they think I sound better.  Vocal cord nerve issues can also affect your breathing, so my ability to exercise at peak aerobic capacity is somewhat reduced.  That said, my friends still think I have way more stamina than them when we go kitesurfing!  And Sergey says I’m probably a better CEO because I choose my words more carefully.  So surprisingly, overall I am feeling very lucky.

Interestingly, while the nerves for your vocal cords take quite different routes through your body, they both pass your thyroid.  So in searching for a cause for both nerves that was an obvious place to look. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis in 2003.  This is a fairly common benign inflammatory condition of the thyroid which causes me no problems.  It is unclear if this is a factor in the vocal cord condition, or whether both conditions were triggered by a virus.

In this journey I have learned a lot more about voice issues.  Though my condition seems to be very rare, there are a significant number of people who develop issues with one vocal nerve.  In seeing different specialists, I met one doctor — Dr. Steven Zeitels from the Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center — who is really excited about the potential to improve vocal cord nerve function.  So I’ve arranged to fund a significant research program through the Voice Health Institute, which he will lead.  Thanks a bunch to my amazing wife Lucy, for her companionship through this journey and for helping oversee this project and get it off the ground.  Also, thanks to the many people who have helped with advice and information many of whom I have not had a chance to thank yet.

Finally, we’ve put together a patient survey to gather information about other people with similar conditions.  As it’s fairly rare, there’s little data available today — and the team hopes that with more information they can make faster progress.  If you have similar symptoms you can fill it out here: voicehealth.org/ip___

We are in the middle of our Q1 earnings call right now. Here are the remarks I just gave.

--------------------
Hi everyone.  Thank you for joining us.  It’s great to be on the call this afternoon.  

If you are listening online, I hope you liked our warm-up video, I hear they had a great time making it.  

OK … We had a really strong start to 2013 -- with Q1 revenue up 31 per cent year-on-year to $14 billion.  I want to give a big shout out to the sales teams that made this all possible.  We tend to focus on product and engineering -- but our business organization is tremendously strong.  They are Google’s unsung heroes.

Over the last two years, we’ve worked hard to increase our velocity, improve our execution and focus on the big bets that will make a difference in the world.

We are in the middle of our Q1 earnings call right now. Here are the remarks I just gave.

--------------------
Hi everyone.  Thank you for joining us.  It’s great to be on the call this afternoon.  

If you are listening online, I hope you liked our warm-up video, I hear they had a great time making it.  

OK … We had a really strong start to 2013 -- with Q1 revenue up 31 per cent year-on-year to $14 billion.  I want to give a big shout out to the sales teams that made this all possible.  We tend to focus on product and engineering -- but our business organization is tremendously strong.  They are Google’s unsung heroes.

Over the last two years, we’ve worked hard to increase our velocity, improve our execution and focus on the big bets that will make a difference in the world.

Take Google Now.  Our goal is to get you the right information, at just the right time.  Launched nine months ago, Now provides boarding passes, delivery updates, and traffic conditions … without you having to ask first.  And this quarter we added movie tickets nicely packaged with directions to the theater.

I am also excited about our Voice Search momentum.  Looking for the nearest pharmacy?  Just ask Google for directions, and we’ll deliver them instantly … no typing needed.  And you can now ask conversational questions like-- “do I need a jacket this weekend?”

Voice commands are going to be increasingly important.  It’s just much less hassle to talk than type!  So this quarter we launched Chrome support for web speech APIs.  Developers can now easily add voice recognition into their web apps.  We expect to see a lot of innovation there.    

The velocity around Google Play is tremendous.  It’s a big bet, and one that’s fundamental to the success of the Android ecosystem.  In our first year:  

We have signed partnerships with all the major movie studios, music labels and publishers; and

Our digital content is available in over 20 countries globally -- seven of which we launched in Q1, including India and Mexico.

And last week, we released a beautiful new UI … with better recommendations, bigger images and a simpler way to buy things.  Play is already a great product and we are improving it at a rapid rate.

As devices multiply, it’s really important that our products work seamlessly whatever device you are using at that moment.  

It’s why I love Google Play … the ability to buy books, apps, movies or songs and have them instantly available on your Android devices, even when you buy it on the web.  When you switch devices while reading, your book opens exactly where you left off!    

In the same way, we need to make advertising across devices really simple for our customers.  

Online advertising has developed in very device-specific ways, with separate campaigns for desktop and mobile.  This makes arduous work for advertisers and agencies, and means mobile opportunities often get missed.  

So in February we launched Enhanced Campaigns, a significant upgrade to AdWords.  Nikesh will talk more about that in a moment … but our goal is simple:  to enable advertisers to focus on their audience and message, while we dynamically adapt their campaigns across multiple devices.  I’ve been very pleased with the rate of progress so far, we’re smoothly moving a huge advertising system and ecosystem on a dime.

In today’s multi-screen world, the opportunities are endless.  Think about your device.  

Battery life is a challenge for most people … you shouldn't need to carry a charger around with you to make it through the day.  

If your kid spills their drink on your tablet, the screen shouldn’t die.  

And when you drop your phone, it shouldn't shatter.  

There’s real potential to invent new and better experiences -- ones that are much faster and more intuitive.  

So having seen Motorola’s upcoming products myself, I am really excited about the potential there.  In just under a year they’ve accomplished a lot and have impressive velocity and execution.

I wanted to finish up by talking a little bit about the future.  

We invest the vast majority of our resources and time in our core products as well as our big bets like Chrome, YouTube and Android.

But as CEO it’s also super important to keep focused on the future.  Companies tend to get comfortable doing what they have always done, with a few minor tweaks.  It’s only natural to want to work on things you know.  But incremental improvement is guaranteed to be obsolete over time.  Especially in technology, where history has shown that there’s a lot of revolutionary change.

So a big part of my job is to get people focused on things that are not just incremental.  Take Gmail.  When we released that, we were a search company -- it was a leap for us to put out an email product, let alone one that gave users 100 times as much storage as anyone else.  It was the same with Android.  And it’s why we’re investing in what appear to be speculative projects to you today, such as self-driving cars.  

We’ve found that with ambitious goals and a committed team you can make progress pretty quickly.  The best people often want to work on the biggest bets -- and there’s not much competition because no-one else is crazy enough to try.

We started Google Fiber because Sergey thought it would be great to show how high-speed Internet access can improve people’s lives.  Three years later, our first homes are live in Kansas City, and in the last two weeks we have announced plans to roll-out the service in Austin and Provo.  

And just this week -- after three years of development -- we started handing over Glass devices to developers.  I get chills when I use a product that is the future, and that happens when I use Glass.  Someday we'll all be amazed that computing involved fishing around in pockets and purses.

There are so many opportunities in the world to create technology that make people’s lives better.  We are still only at 1 per cent of what’s possible … we are really just getting started … and that is why I am so excited to be here -- working hard with Googlers to take our company to the next level.___

I'm excited about Google and Malaysia!

Today the country of Malaysia announced that they are adopting Google Apps (our suite of cloud-based tools that includes Gmail, Docs and Calendar) for 10 million students, teachers and parents. They’ll also be deploying Chromebooks to primary and secondary schools nationwide. These efforts are part of Malaysia’s national education reform, which includes making the web central to its education system (you can read the full plan here: http://goo.gl/dMxdG). ___I'm excited about Google and Malaysia!

Just posted this on the official google blog:

Sergey and I first heard about Android back in 2004, when Andy Rubin came to visit us at Google. He believed that aligning standards around an open-source operating system would drive innovation across the mobile industry. Most people thought he was nuts. But his insight immediately struck a chord because at the time it was extremely painful developing services for mobile devices. We had a closet full of more than 100 phones and were building our software pretty much device by device. It was nearly impossible for us to make truly great mobile experiences. 

Fast forward to today. The pace of innovation has never been greater, and Android is the most used mobile operating system in the world: we have a global partnership of over 60 manufacturers; more than 750 million devices have been activated globally; and 25 billion apps have now been... more »

The pace of innovation has never been greater, and Android is the most used mobile operating system in the world: we have a global partnership of over 60 manufacturers; more than 750 million devices have been activated globally; and 25 billion apps have now been downloaded from Google Play. Pretty extraordinary progress for a decade’s work. Having exceeded even the crazy ambitious goals we dreamed of for Android—and with a really strong leadership team in place—Andy’s decided it’s time to hand over the reins and start a new chapter at Google. Andy, more moonshots please!

Going forward, Sundar Pichai will lead Android, in addition to his existing work with Chrome and Apps. Sundar has a talent for creating products that are technically excellent yet easy to use—and he loves a big bet. Take Chrome, for example. In 2008, people asked whether the world really needed another browser. Today Chrome has hundreds of millions of happy users and is growing fast thanks to its speed, simplicity and security. So while Andy’s a really hard act to follow, I know Sundar will do a tremendous job doubling down on Android as we work to push the ecosystem forward. 

Today we’re living in a new computing environment. People are really excited about technology and spending a lot of money on devices. This is driving faster adoption than we have ever seen before. The Nexus program—developed in conjunction with our partners Asus, HTC, LG and Samsung—has become a beacon of innovation for the industry, and services such as Google Now have the potential to really improve your life. We’re getting closer to a world where technology takes care of the hard work—discovery, organization, communication—so that you can get on with what makes you happiest… living and loving. It’s an exciting time to be at Google. ___

I loved meeting Charles Chase from Lockheed Skunk Works because he wants to change the world and he has a plan.  His dream is about building a compact fusion reactor (that would fit it on the back of a truck) which is capable of generating 100MW of electricity - enough to power a small city.  Charles thinks he could have a prototype in 5 years and a fully engineered plant in 10 years.  This would be capable of meeting all electricity demands globally by 2050.  All with virtually zero emissions.  An exciting example of how 10X thinking could make the world a better place.

Here is the speech I just gave on our earnings call:

Happy New Year everyone and welcome to our earnings call.  Thank you for joining us this afternoon.

We ended 2012 with a strong quarter.  Revenue was up 36% year-on-year, and 8% quarter-on-quarter.  And we hit $50 billion in revenue for the first time last year – not a bad achievement in just a decade and a half.

We’ve talked a lot about excellence and velocity over the last year.  While many claim it’s my nature never to be satisfied, we’ve actually made real progress creating more beautiful and more intuitive products.

Take Search.  The perfect search engine would understand exactly what you mean, and give you exactly what you want.  Our Knowledge Graph brings that much closer.

Here is the speech I just gave on our earnings call:

Happy New Year everyone and welcome to our earnings call.  Thank you for joining us this afternoon.

We ended 2012 with a strong quarter.  Revenue was up 36% year-on-year, and 8% quarter-on-quarter.  And we hit $50 billion in revenue for the first time last year – not a bad achievement in just a decade and a half.

We’ve talked a lot about excellence and velocity over the last year.  While many claim it’s my nature never to be satisfied, we’ve actually made real progress creating more beautiful and more intuitive products.

Take Search.  The perfect search engine would understand exactly what you mean, and give you exactly what you want.  Our Knowledge Graph brings that much closer.

Search for Nikola Tesla and you’ll get information about this great inventor that is beautifully displayed right from the results page … his basic bio, books he wrote, his photo - no extra work needed.  We’ll even recommend information about other inventors such as Edison and Marconi that you can easily browse through … again right from the results page.

And last quarter we launched the Knowledge Graph in seven new languages – including Spanish, Japanese and Russian.  This is hard work.  It’s about way more than translating the words on the page.  Google has to understand millions of different entities, as well as their meaning and context.

I’m also excited about the progress we’ve made with Voice Search.  You’re in your car – sadly it’s still a car you have to drive and it’s not electric – and you’re running out of gas.  Just pick-up your phone and ask Google for “directions to the nearest gas station” – and you’ll be on your way immediately.  It’s a great example of how we can take the hassle right out of your life.

Our long-term investments in Google Maps have really paid off.  The team has worked tremendously hard to create the most accurate and comprehensive maps in the world.  Driving country-by-country may have seemed crazy a few years back. Today, it’s totally obvious because location is core to your search experience.

And with Google Maps for iOS, we’ve reinvigorated our product.  It’s more intuitive and beautiful, and users love it.  Google Maps for iOS was downloaded over 10 million times in the first 48 hours!

In fact, six Google apps were included in Apple’s App Store Best Free Apps of 2012:  including YouTube, Chrome, Google Search and Gmail.

I’ve always believed that computers should do the hard work – so you can get on with the things that matter in life … living, learning and loving.

So it’s exciting to see our progress with Google Now.  Launched earlier in the year, it gives you information before you even have to ask.  We’ll now proactively provide your flight times, OR your boarding pass, OR directions to your next appointment.  We will even suggest interesting places to visit nearby.

As we discussed on the last earnings call, we now live in a multi-screen world.

People carry a supercomputer in their pocket all the time.  In fact we feel naked without our smartphone!  And many users have more than one device … a laptop, a phone, and a tablet.

We’re living in uncharted territory.  It’s a new kind of computing environment.  Everyone is really excited about our technology and spending a lot of money on devices, driving faster adoption than we have ever seen before.

It’s been a long time in computing since we have had this rate of change -- it probably hasn’t happened since the birth of personal computing.

It’s why we’ve put so much focus on devices.  They’ve been one of our biggest bets in the last few years – along with the software to go with the devices, Chrome and Android.

Our goal here is to push the user experience forward – so you get the best of Google in one, easy-to-use package.

The Samsung Chromebook, which we launched in October for the amazing price of $249, was a holiday highlight.  I love mine.  It’s super easy to use, and it almost maintains itself.  Open a Chrome tab on your phone, and everything syncs on your laptop with no extra effort required.  

We also launched two new Nexus devices to rave reviews - Nexus 4 and Nexus 10.  And, six months after we first unveiled it, Nexus 7 continues to define the 7 inch tablet category, making many “best of 2012” and holiday gift lists.

Clearly, there’s work to be done managing our supply better, as well as building a great customer experience.  And that is a priority for the teams.

But considering all the excitement over the holidays for our devices, it is clear there is a tremendous opportunity delivering great value with an amazing and simple user experience.

Google Play – another big bet – is on fire.  The growth is tremendous. This quarter we signed deals with Time as well as Warner Music Group.  So we now provide content from all the top Hollywood film studios, music labels and magazine publishers.  We have not even reached Google Play’s first anniversary!

Many of you have questions about Motorola, and Patrick will go into details about how we’re accounting for the business so you can get your models right.

I am excited about the business. In today’s multi screen world, the opportunities are endless.  Think about your device.  Battery life is a huge issue.  You shouldn't have to worry about constantly recharging your phone.  When you drop your phone, it shouldn't go splat.  Everything should be a ton faster and easier.  There’s real potential to invent new and better experiences.

Our CEO at Motorola, Dennis, has built a world-class team, and they’re working on these opportunities.  It’s still early days, but I am excited about the innovative way they’re approaching product development and the speed of their execution.  And they recently signed an agreement to sell Motorola’s Home division for $2.35 billion.
 
2012 was an amazing year for Google.  And we are all set for a great 2013!

I am incredibly optimistic about the opportunities we have as a technology company focused on user benefit.  Every day I come to work excited about more and bigger opportunities.  And every day we work to have more and better organized Googlers, those are our employees, improving their execution and overall capability to build world changing products.  I know it sounds funny, but with the ambitious plans we have, we are only just getting started!

Our biggest challenge in this area is focus.  We face so many opportunities it’s always important to thoughtfully invest in the right areas where we can have the greatest impact.  We don’t want to spread ourselves too thin.  But I’m quite optimistic that as we get better and better at managing our product areas we will be able to continue to grow our ambitions.  That’s why I’m here.  And that’s one reason why Googlers love working at Google.
 
Googlers remain our greatest asset, and we’re working hard to recruit and retain the best employees.  We had a great start to the year by being named FORTUNE Magazine’s the Best Company to Work For in the US for the fourth time.

We’ve worked hard to create a company where everyone is part of the family – and where the work is challenging and rewarding.  So we’re really happy to get that recognition.

I want to finish by thanking all the Googlers who’ve made all this possible.  And now I’ll turn it over to Patrick.  Thank you.___

Great to be recognized as employer #1 for the fourth time by Fortune (2007, 2008, 2012, 2013).  We've tried really hard to create a work place where Googlers feel part of a family and it's great to see that pay off.

Excited about our Google Doodle today of Ada Lovelace.  Amazing she wrote "software" before we had actual computers!  Available today on the Google homepage.

Lady Ada Lovelace, born nearly two centuries ago on December 10, 1815, is considered by some to be the world’s first computer programmer. In 1843, she published the first algorithm intended for use on Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine. Nearly a century before the first computers were built, Ada envisaged a day when a single machine would be capable of a myriad of tasks, limited only by the creativity of its programmer.

Today we're celebrating Ada's prophetic vision for computing with a doodle on homepages worldwide. We hope today's doodle inspires people to find out more about Ada, and about the contributions made by women in general to science and technology.

Personally providing free flu shots to all San Francisco bay area kids at Target -- just walk in.  Research shows giving kids flu shots can have a big effect in preventing flu in the whole region and protecting elderly.  (Don't worry, I'm not actually administering the shots :)

The CDC has designated December 2–8 as National Influenza Vaccination Week to highlight the importance of continuing flu vaccination throughout the flu season.  So happy National Influenza Vaccination Week.

Here are the remarks I just made on the earnings call.

Hello everyone -- thanks for joining us.  It’s great to be on the call today and to share our progress since we last spoke six months ago.  As you can hear my voice is still hoarse so I will keep my remarks reasonably short.  

I am sorry for the scramble earlier today.  As our printers have said, they hit send on the release just a bit early.

We had a strong quarter -- I am really happy with our business.  

Revenue was up 45 per cent year-on-year, and, at just fourteen years old, we cleared our first $14 billion revenue quarter.  Not bad for a teenager!

Hello everyone -- thanks for joining us.  It’s great to be on the call today and to share our progress since we last spoke six months ago.  As you can hear my voice is still hoarse so I will keep my remarks reasonably short.  

I am sorry for the scramble earlier today.  As our printers have said, they hit send on the release just a bit early.

We had a strong quarter -- I am really happy with our business.  

Revenue was up 45 per cent year-on-year, and, at just fourteen years old, we cleared our first $14 billion revenue quarter.  Not bad for a teenager!

Today, we live in a world of abundance… abundant information and abundant computing.  

Most of us carry at least one device, all the time, every day.  In fact many of us would feel naked without our smartphone.   It’s hardly surprising mobile search queries -- and mobile commerce -- are growing dramatically across the world. 

And we use these devices interchangeably, depending on our situation.  I switch between my Nexus phone, Nexus 7 tablet and my new Chromebook that we just announced today many times a day.  

While this abundance causes disruption, it also creates amazing opportunity.  And Google is super well-placed to take advantage of these disruptive opportunities.  

Why?  Because our search query volumes have grown this quarter as measured year over year.  And we are seeing tremendous innovation in advertising which, I believe, will help us monetize mobile queries more effectively than desktop today.  Indeed our mobile monetization per query is already a significant fraction compared to desktop.   

In short, as we transition from one screen to multiscreens, Google has enormous opportunities to innovate and drive ever higher monetization.  Just like Search in 2000.
  
Now we took a big bet on Android back in 2005.  We believed that aligning standards around an open source operating system would drive innovation across the industry.  Most people thought we were nuts.  

Today there are over half a billion Android devices-half a billion - with 1.3 million more being activated every day.  You should all run out and buy the Nexus 7 tablet for $199.  It’s had rave reviews and recently won “Gadget of the Year” from T3, the gadget experts.  You’ll love the integration with Google Play.  It is an amazing device.

This time last year I announced that our run-rate for mobile advertising hit $2.5 billion.  That seemed like a pretty big number -- even for Google.  Now we have built up additional mobile revenue from users paying for content and apps in Google Play.  Including these new sources grossed up, I can announce our new run-rate for mobile is now over $8 billion.  That’s quite a business.  

We have so many opportunities today, that unless we prioritize we spread ourselves too thin.  Last month, we sunset another 19 products.  We’ve now closed or have combined 60 products and features in the last year.  And, we’ve put a ton of energy into ensuring that our remaining products work really well together.   Because as screens multiply, it’s more important than ever that we converge our services.  

Users want one consistent, beautiful and simple Google experience.  Technology should do all the hard work, liberating users to get on with the important things that matter in their lives.   And this screen independence is at the core of our strategy.  

Take Chrome on Android, for example.  We only launched in February but the experience is already amazing.  When you are using Chrome, switching devices is truly painless.  All your tabs are there, ready to go.  Search on your desktop and the result is right there on your smartphone.  You can even click the back button, and it just works.   And as more users upgrade to Google+ -- it’s now over 400 million -- users are enjoying amazing experiences across devices like instant photo upload.  

In the same way, we want to make advertising super simple for customers.  Online advertising has developed in very device specific ways, with separate campaigns for desktop and mobile.  This makes arduous work for advertisers and agencies, and means mobile opportunities often get missed.  

So we’re working to significantly simplify the campaign experience -- working very hard on that.  Advertisers should be free to think about their audience, while we do the hard work of dynamically adapting their campaigns across devices.  I’m very excited about this.

I talked at the start about the abundance of information.  In the early days of Google, you would type in a query, we’d return ten blue links, and you would move on fairly happily.  Today you expect more.  You expect Google to understand deeply.  And you expect us to turn your intentions into actions in the blink of an eye.  

If you search for “Tom Hanks movies”, chances are you want … movies with Tom Hanks!   And thanks to our Knowledge Graph that’s what we show now -- right from the results page: clean, fast, and organized.

And if you’re shopping, say for “Ugg boots”, we now give you pictures, details about the different boots, prices and information about local inventory -- again right from the results page: clean, fast, and organized.

There’s much more we can do to get you the right information at just the right time.  

You might have have a really important event in the city (perhaps a first date), and the traffic is bad.  You need to leave early to avoid being late.  Or maybe you’ve just landed in a new country and you’re at the airport ATM trying to figure out how much cash to withdraw?  Google Now, which we launched on Android in June, gives you all that information and more … automatically, with zero effort required on your part.  

It’s still early days but these kinds of tips and recommendations are super powerful.  They really save users time and hassle.  This is why I’m incredibly excited about the opportunities ahead, given our expertise in Search and Mobile, and our track record monetizing high usage products.  

Everyday, I wake up and I’m delighted that our opportunities keep growing.  And, that we’re birthing to our users great products that are defining the future.  It’s a truly exciting time to be at Google!  ___

Really excited about what happened yesterday.  California Governor Jerry Brown came to Google to sign a new law about self driving cars.  Hopefully more states will follow soon.  It’s great to see politicians standing up for legislative reforms that allow greater innovation -- especially Alex Padilla, the author of this bill.  

Sergey and I founded Google because we’re super optimisitc about the potential for technology to make the world a better place.  Think about how many people are underserved by transportation today, like those with disabilities, and how self driving cars will transform their lives.   Or the wasted time you sit in your car every day commuting to and from work.  Or the deaths and injuries that could be avoided.  It’s great to think that when young kids start driving the cars they're in will be guiding them safely on their journey.

+Sergey Brin in a fashion video?  Never can tell what my partner will do!  Check out his brief appearance in +DVF's video as captured by a prototype Google Glass.

Celebrated fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg tried on Glass for the first time a few months ago at a conference that she attended with Sergey Brin. She immediately loved it and they agreed to bring Glass to New York Fashion Week. Diane is a champion for innovation and effortless design, so it’s unsurprising that Glass fit seamlessly into her production. In the week leading up to her Spring 2013 show in New York, and during the show itself, everyone from stylists and models to Diane herself used Glass to capture never-before-seen footage of the creative process. This is the first time any video has been shot entirely through Glass and we’re so excited to be able to share it with you. #DVFthroughGlass  ___+Sergey Brin in a fashion video?  Never can tell what my partner will do!  Check out his brief appearance in +DVF's video as captured by a prototype Google Glass.

Always good to see your shadow, especially when it is on MARS!  Congrats NASA.  Just watched part of the press conference and the excitement is contagious.  I can't imagine the feeling of relief after years and years of hard work and a lot of inherent risk.  I hope we see a lot more missions like this. It would be amazing to see the other planets and moons up close and we would learn a lot, I'm sure.

We are always pushing the limits of our technology, and Project Glass is no exception.  It is designed to help you live in the moment -- even when you’re falling from the sky.

We’re still in early development days, but at Google I/O this morning we wanted to do a product demo in a way we’d never tried before.  We worked with some of the world’s top athletes, combined skydiving and mountain biking, and shared the experience -- through their eyes -- with the world.

If you missed it, we’d love you to be able to see how we put this together, so tune in live tomorrow (weather permitting!) at roughly 11am at https://developers.google.com/events/io/ to check it out.

And you may just catch another Hangout in Air.

Check out the Google homepage today in honor of what would be Alan Turing's 100th birthday.  
www.google.com
I remember being completely astounded learning in my computer theory class at college that anything that you can compute can be simulated by a simple Turing machine.  That simple machine is animated on our home page today.

Today we're marking the birth of a someone who is a hero to many of us at Google. Alan Turing was born 100 years ago into a world very different from our own—but he’s a founding father of every computer and Internet company today. In 1936, his paper “On Computable Numbers”  introduced two key concepts, “algorithms” and “computing machines," which now rank among the most important intellectual breakthroughs of the 20th century.

In the evolution of computing, all paths trace back to Turing—so we're proud to help commemorate and preserve his legacy. In 2010 we helped raise funds to preserve Turing's papers at Bletchley Park, and recently we’ve worked with curators at London’s Science Museum on their new exhibition “Codebreaker - Alan Turing’s Life and Legacy.” And of course, we couldn't let this occasion pass without a doodle. If you visit our homepage today, you'll find a simulation of his “Turing machine"—try your hand at programming it, and read more about Turing in our blog post: http://goo.gl/ByYbV___Check out the Google homepage today in honor of what would be Alan Turing's 100th birthday.

Just back from London--great trip. Loved our new office space there--the building by Italian architect Renzo Piano is in super bright colors so it feels very Googley on the outside as well as the inside. I also spoke at our Zeitgeist partner conference between Peter Diamandis from the XPrize and President Clinton, so pretty hard acts to follow! Here's my talk ... and yes I love our Google Glass, though it is still early days!
